Produced by Zenith in quantities of 5000 each of the 3 dial variations, this Defy is a 1970’s true style icon. The dial is featured in a space gray finish which shows tones of brown depending on the lighting. The 37 mm tonneau case is an original unpolished brushed condition and the high polish multi-angle bezel displays the dial in a bold yet sophisticated way. The hand cut for tier finish of the stainless-steel hour markers can be seen from across the room. With the dial having so many distinct features such as the orange luminescent secondhand in the red hour highlighting markers, this piece somehow has not been given the notoriety it deserves. This is A7681 is sold with a fully serviced Zenith caliber 2562 PC in-house automatic movement. The oversized original Zenith crown features screw down water resistance. The quality of the build of this watch is right up there with anything produced during this time. This example is sold on a custom brown Italian suede rally strap.
